Steiger Quadtrac 620 Tractor Sets New Performance Records
Steiger® tractors — whether wheeled or Quadtrac® — perform better than any other tractor in agriculture, according to recent trials from Nebraska Tractor Test Laboratory (NTTL). Steiger Quadtrac tractors are setting the bar for drawbar fuel efficiency, drawbar horsepower and maximum pull.1 This builds on record-setting results released for the Steiger 620 wheeled model earlier this year.2
In many high-draft load conditions, Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) emissions technology can aid in providing fuel economy and power generation that surpasses competitive engines. Additionally, it allows the engine to run cleaner, which extends oil change intervals — 600 hours for Case IH versus 450 hours for most competitive units — thus reducing operating costs and helping to keep maintenance lower. Thanks to an efficient transmission and driveline, the tractor also delivers additional drawbar horsepower to increase productivity.
Kurt Druffel of Pullman, Washington, who has driven both Case IH and John Deere four-track tractors, agrees. “The Case [IH] Quadtrac recovered faster and got back up to speed at a more consistent pace than the John Deere,” Druffel said.
In recent independent tests, the Steiger Quadtrac 620 tractor set a record for drawbar fuel efficiency — outperforming all other tracked tractors.

Proven four-track design
More than 20 years of industry-leading track technology can be found on every Steiger Quadtrac tractor, featuring four individually driven, positive drive oscillating tracks. These four-track systems include an exclusive Case IH five-axle design to distribute weight evenly and consistently. Each track maintains constant contact with the ground, giving producers a great ride, optimal pressure, superior flotation, increased traction and less compaction.
